After 69 years of obstructionism, the Palestinian leadership no longer deserves a seat at the table. It is time for Israel to behave as the victor of the conflict, and to win the peace.
In the 69 years of this history, Israelis’ support for the two-state solution, however, has slowly eroded. The main reason is the realization that the Palestinians never wanted it and are not likely to ever want it.
Ironically, the area where Christians and Muslims most need atonement and self-reflection is in the way that they have treated Jews over the centuries. Unfortunately, they lack a holiday like Yom Kippur
Lebanon’s friends are the type of friends who make you think that you don’t need enemies. Ironically, except for its "enemy" Israel.
Edy Cohen, was not born in Israel. He is a refugee from Lebanon. Unlike many refugees, he is not waiting for handouts or international sympathy. He has made a life for himself in Israel and advocates for Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
